A motorcyclist died in an accident on U.S. Highway 95 in central Las Vegas, the Clark County coroner’s office informed. The identity of the man is already known.
Forty-eight-year-old Thierry Denis Totomena died at the University Medical Center. The reason for his death was multiple rough force injuries, the coroner’s office said. His death was ruled an accident.
Totomena attempted to stop on the right shoulder of southward U.S. 95, nearby the Decatur Boulevard exit, but instead, to do that, he stalled in the central travel lanes. His bike stopped, and he got struck by a woman who was driving a Dodge Ram. She hit the brakes, but her vehicle still managed to hit Totomena, the Nevada Highway Patrol said.
